    I've been trying for the last three days to get this to run properly, and I'm just not sure what the issue is.

    - I've installed DIOS MIOS 2.6
    - I've tried using DM Booster, wiiflow, and USB Loader GX
    - I'm running with the most up to date mod and ios pack
    - My external hard drive is compatible
    - I've formatted the HD with a FAT32 partition, with a 32 bit cluster size
    - I've used both DiskEX and the included DMToolBox to format and store the games

    Okay, here's the problem; DIOS MIOS seems to work erratically. Using DMBooter and Wiiflow, it's random chance whether the games will boot or not. Sometimes they freeze before the splash screen, sometimes after, sometimes the wii shuts off, and sometimes it just boots the disk currently in the Wii. Some games don't seem to work at all, like Kirby's Air Ride which I've never gotten to boot. Another game I have an issue with is Nintendo Puzzle Collection; 50% of the time it shuts the wii off, and the rest of the time it will boot, but lock on the Nintendo logo (It doesn't seem frozen, it just won't progress past it).

    And on a side note, USB Loader won't detect gamecube games at all. I've formatted the fold structure correctly, I've changed the path it searches for games to USB1, and I've selected the proper partition, but it's not detected a single game (Even ones I've installed with USB Loader itself.

    So, if anyone could help or point me in the right direction, I'd really appreciate it.

    make sure you gamecube games are in a folder called games on the root of the drive also make sure your running usb loadergx r1204 and at the top of the screen in loader gx is a button that lets you choose which games show up

    I've done both of these; all games are in the 'games' folder, and all have been formatted correctly. And yes, I'm using r1024. Both DM Booster and wiiflow can detect the games, it's just that only half of them seem to run, and even the only 50% of the time. For both Kirby's Air Ride and Nintendo Puzzle Collection (Which I can't get to work at all), I've tried multiple copies and downloads to make sure it wasn't a poor dump, and still have the same issues with both.

    Darn, I was wondering why that game wouldn't work.
